I'm trying to learn how to create Office Add-Ins, but the Development tools don't appear to be apart of VS Community. Everything I've read is saying community is not a cutdown version of VS.

Microsoft Office Developer Tools check box is not an option during setup.

What am I not understanding?

  • Community supports add-ons that doesn't mean the Addon you require is supported, if it isn't, then you are out of luck. – Ramhound Jun 15 '15 at 18:29

    @Raystafarian Thanks a ton... Don't know why all my google searching wouldn't bring me to that beautiful site. Make that an 'Answer' so you can get credit! – brett s Jun 15 '15 at 19:37

When this was introduced, MS had a blog post describing it and how it can be downloaded - it was not included in the VS installer. Installation link at the bottom.
